Le Bistro Des Amis, Skipton
Le Bistro Des Amis is proud to be situated in the beautiful market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire. Our cosy, laid back atmosphere and tasty food means we’re the perfect place for if you want to pop in for a quick coffee or beer or linger over a full three-course dinner. Our Franco/Yorkshire twist means that we serve classic French dishes alongside some British favourites and modern European cuisine.
We source our ingredients either locally or from famous French markets because we believe top quality produce speaks for itself. Our staff are super friendly and efficient so whether you’re out with friends, family or just popping out on your own, come meet our welcoming team, relax and enjoy the flavours.
We have a variety of choices on our menus. Not only so we serve stunning French favourites, but you can also be guaranteed to find some British Classics too – such as our sumptuous Sunday Roast. If you are just looking for a lighter bite we have a great selection of snacks and sandwiches made from our own freshly baked bread. We also have a ‘menu du jour’ which provides excellent value for those wanting an earlier sitting.
Le Patron is restaurateur and chef, Luc Daguzan who created Le Bistro over three years ago with a dream of bringing the panache, style and cuisine of France to Skipton, combined with good-old, honest Yorkshire values. Luc is a proud self-proclaimed Yorkshire-Frenchman, having lived in Skipton for many years. His passion for simple, authentic dishes shines through in everything on the menu so you’ll be sure to enjoy Le Bistro’s Franco-Yorkshire experience. All of Le Bistro’s ingredients are either sourced locally or from France’s markets so every dish is of the freshest traceable quality!
Downstairs at Le Bistro Des we offer a superb bar area, complete with relaxed seating and a fully stocked bar. We have the finest on offer, including fantastic, authentic French wines.
The ground floor isn’t the only place to enjoya drink – there is also a fully stocked bar in the bistro upstairs; with numerous options that will compliment your meals. We also have a wonderful selection of teas and coffees.
We think you’ll enjoy our wine list. Everything – from the humble house wines to the most prestigious bottles are carefully handpicked for their delicious taste. And we offer many other drinks as well – from rich, smooth coffee to the popular French tipple, Pastis. As Luc hails from the Loire Valley, you’ll not be surprised to see delightful offerings from here. The wine list is mainly French with a selection from vineyards around the world to suit all pallets. All our wines are supplied from the exceptional wine merchant – The Wright Wine Company here in Skipton.
We very proudly serve two top Yorkshire real ales, cask conditioned in our cellar and well looked after by Damien your Manager. ‘Landlord’ is a local favourite from Keighley brewer Timothy Taylor. Award winning ‘Mary Jane’ from The Ilkley brewery is, again, brewed only a few miles away from Le Bistro is a lighter beer with citrus hints – delicious in the summer months! There is a good choice of bottled beers and ciders. We are pleased to be a member of CAMRA and are recognised in the Good Beer Guide, so you are assured our beers are all tip top!
